Monday is President's Day: a day to remember and honor our leaders and, if you're lucky or a student, enjoy a little time off.
Luckily, many city offices are still open, including:
- City Hall
- Birmingham Police Department
- Birmingham Fire Department
- Baldwin Public Library
- The Community House
All state and federal offices, however, will be closed on Monday, including the U.S. Post Office on Bowers Street. Trash collection, however, will not be impacted by the holiday; Birmingham residents will have their waste picked up on their regularly scheduled day this week.
Most local banks are also closed for the holiday, including the Birmingham Bloomfield Credit Union, First Place Bank, Bank of America, Paramount Bank, Bank of Birmingham, mBank, Flagstar Bank, Chase Bank and Comerica Bank.
Birmingham Public Schools' midwinter break also begins Monday, meaning school is closed for most of the city's students. The Roeper School and the Holy Name School also begins its midwinter break on Monday
The Eton Academy's winter break, meanwhile, begins Feb. 23.
